Turn Course ON for Students
Students are automatically added to BbLearn courses about two weeks before the start of a semester, but before students see a course in BbLearn, it must be "turned ON" or be made "available to students" by the Instructor. If it belongs to a merge of several sections, make the "MASTER COURSE" available, but don't turn on any of the "Child courses". Turning a course ON automatically triggers an email to your enrolled students.
Make Course Available:
- Under the Control Panel, expand Turn Course ON-OFF.
- Select Course Availability.
- Under Set Availability, check Yes to turn your course ON for students. Do NOT select the "Term Mode" option.
- Press Submit.
- Your students will receive an email with details on how to login to your course.
If you have a Section Merge with a MASTER COURSE, DO NOT turn "ON" or make your "CHILD" sections available to students. If you do, students will see two identically titled hyperlinks to your course. One link will take them to your "MASTER COURSE" and the other will take them to the "CHILD" section. These two are stored in separate locations and do not share course material, discussions, assignments, assessments, grade centers, etc. Giving students access to both the "MASTER COURSE" and their "CHILD" section will cause confusion and frustration.
